PlayThing: a product of mindless play. An edition made for Infinite Multiple


Toying with the idea of luxury goods and a concept of nothing as a productive category within the context of the attention economy, PlayThing is the product of an ongoing interest in distraction, machine automation and human automaticity.

For the making of PlayThing, a small manipulated clay form was initially created by hand in an absent-minded way. The resultant form was scanned, and then 3D printed in a photopolymer resin. The combination of absent-minded and high-end production creates an non-normal experience of having yet not having.
